Hope & Change: Only 25% of Public Trusts Government
Washington (CNN) – A new poll indicates that only one in four Americans say they trust the government to do what is right always or most of the time, one explanation for the anti-incumbent sentiment in the country today.

According to CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national survey released Tuesday, 25 percent of the public indicates that they trust the government in Washington to do what's is right most or all of the time, with 66 percent saying they trust the government to do what's right only some of the time and eight percent saying they never trust the government.

"That lack of trust in government is not a recent phenomenon - except for a brief spike fueled by patriotism immediately after 9/11, a majority have not trusted the government since the early 1970s," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

But the recession appears to have made matters worse.

No, it's probably about right, considering that 25% of the people either "work" for the government, or collect handouts from the government.

The article said that 8% percent never trust the government. That means that 92% of the population is either naive or just plain stupid, which would explain why this country is so f'ing busted.

The popularity of that thing called "Lady GaGa", whatever the hell that is, makes we think there's no hope for the brain dead sheeple.
